Progress Stymied in Mays Case

The murder case against alleged killer Cameron Mays was delayed again this afternoon at Third Judicial (Lincoln, Union Parishes) District Court in Ruston. It turns out that the indigent defender – Deanna McCallum – appointed last month to Mays’ case is related to Lincoln Parish Coroner Dr. Michael Belue and may have a conflict of interest as a result. Belue will likely testify during trial.

A hearing was set for June 17 to rule on the issue. If a conflict exists, then Mays will have to be assigned new counsel. Mays’ original attorney died earlier this year.

Originally, today’s hearing was to decide if Mays is competent to stand trial.

Mays is accused of killing retired Grambling State University (GSU) professor Dr. Sue Hashway in a home invasion in June of 2012.

Presiding today was Ad Hoc (Retired) Judge James Boddie.

    The case Ruston PD hid from the public until they made an arrest. Wouldn’t even let people in the neighborhood know a murder/robbery had occurred.

    2 years this month and no trial. Competency hearing? That’s BS.
